iran. we have factors put into place here. we're in a general election, and we have governor romney attempting to use the president's words against him regarding israel. i think it is important to note that benjamin netanyahu said under the obama administration these strict sanctions were pult into place, and they have worked. praising, if you will, the obama administration. with all of that said, his speech boiled down to, there's an imminent threat. he compared it to the holocaust as well, and he believes that action must be taken within the next year it sounds. >> yeah. it will be interesting to see in the text day or two how the obama administration responds. we knew this red line speech was coming. we knew that the obama administration and netanyahu specifically did not agree necessarily on the future actions to take. it's been abundantly clear obama has not appreciated having his hand forced by netanyahu. netanyahu has absolutely realized that this is an election season, has been accused probably rightly so of manipulating certain parts of u.s. election system to what he perce

into our prime time hours. we are six weeks away from an election as of today. we are eight days away from the first presidential debate next wednesday in colorado. big, big times. martha: we're looking forward to that. "happening now" starts right now. we'll see you right back here tomorrow. jon: we begin with this fox news alert of the president obama just wrapping up his address to the united nations general assembly. the president challenging the international community to confront the causes of violence erupting across the muslim world and delivering a stern warning to iran saying the united states will do what it must do to prevent tehran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. we're going to have reaction to the president's u.n. address coming up in just a moment. first though, brand new stories and breaking news. >> the deadly west nile virus outbreak across our country is now getting worse. with one state hit very hard, the new efforts to stop the virus right in its tracks. >>> wild weather killer floods and mudslides are forcing more than a million folks out of their homes. we're live w
politics, you've probably noticed that polling of the presidential election has swung quite decidedly in the president's favor over the last couple of weeks. the real clear politics polling average now has obama up 4.1 points over mitt romney in national poles. nate silver's prediction model put barack obama's odds of winning the election above 80% for the first time ever. swing state polling just this week seems to confirm the trend. a new quinnipiac "new york times" cbs poll shows surprisingly strong leads for the president. the galup tracking poll shows obama up six points. it's pretty hard to survey the polling data and not come to the conclusion that barack obama is beating mitt romney, that if the election were held today barack obama would win and that romney has a relatively steep though certainly not insurmountable uphill climb to victory. that is if you operate in the alternate epi stem mick universe of the media. >> that begs the question, are these polls dishonest? >> no. look, we endo you them with a falls scientific precision. >> these polls, i don't pay attention to the
a emergency it is more about politics. >>neil: i don't know the history of these things during the election years, maybe the entertainment media is so big today. he figured, and who am i to know, if i meet with one i have to meet with 11 others and i'm not going to meet with any. maybe that was the rationale. what do you think? >>guest: i think he was afraid to meet with any of them. he would be afraid of meeting with prime minister binyamin netanyahu because this would be a report they didn't get along. that impacts with jewish voters. he would meet with morsi and maybe not be able to be as hard as he would like and that impacts other people watching our relationship with egypt. any meeting he would have with anyone there could have been some risk something negative would come out so rather than meeting with anyone at all, go on "the view" and hope we can garner more votes. >>neil: i will get into the political questions with ed henry, but i want to raise where the political risk would be going ahead and meeting with netanyahu and going ahead and telling the new president of egypt, where d

of wednesday's most highly anticipated speeches, came from egypt. 's newly elected president and the former leader of the muslim brotherhood. he called on the united states to support palestinian rights just as it did the arab uprisings. >> just as you've support the revolution of the arab people, i call upon to you lend your support to the palestinians and their endeavor to regain the full and legitimate rights of people struggling to gain its freedom and establish his independent state. >> don't expect the white house to say much about this or other issues this could further strain relations with israel. the all-important jewish vote is already being put to the test. cnn's pop at this har slow in new york with a look at that impact. good morning. >> good morning, carol. well, we had an interesting night last night, we went to two home jewish families in new jersey to join them for their yom kip pup brepur break-fast. president obama got 78% of the jewish vote in 2008. mccain, 21% of the vote but we wanted to talk to these fam bliss their different views because netanyahu and the president
have shifted by about three points in each of the last couple of elections, and they tend to go against the incumbent administration. yes, there are questions about turnout. we expect to see a higher turnout among seniors, a slightly higher turnout among white voters, perhaps slightly higher among latinos, but most importantly we expect there will be fewer democrats relative to republicans in 2012 than there were in 2008. cheryl: scott, let's stay on this demographic issue because back in 2008 the turnout was actually higher for african-americans, obviously, most of them going for president obama. at the same time, normally that turnout number is about 11%. is it your sense in the numbers that you're seeing and tracking that we're going to see more of that realistic 11 percentile of african-american voters turning out this election? >> i believe the african-american turnout itself will be just about the same as it was in 2008. however, i believe the white turnout will be a little bit higher. there were a lot of seniors who were very discouraged with the choices last time around, so i be
as mathematically impossible. do you think mr. romney really thought he could fight this election by simply blaming the president but not having any content of his own? do you think that was his strategy? >> well i think that was his strategy. then he chose paul ryan and they claim to be fiscally conservative people but paul ryan's budget that mitt romney called a marvelous budget would not achieve balance for 30 years. so, they aren't even fiscally responsible. across the board, you know they've run a campaign that has blamed the president, blamed the president. they have no new ideas of their own. they simply want to go back to the bush agenda. more tax cuts for really wealthy people. putting an additional tax burden on working people. and looking down their noses in the most disdainful way, martin. >> yes. >> and i think mitt romney spoke from his heart when he talked about 47% of the american people basically being parasites. >> you are the psychologist, so only you can make a comment about that. but i'm so glad you mentioned paul ryan because he was on the trail to
walter mondale's people were blaming the polls back in 1984 a day before the election. the day before reagan got 49 states. blaming everything else but where the blame lies. and that is mitt romney and his horrible campaign. peggy noonan was right. you know, these idiots blast people like peggy noonan, these idiots blast people like "the wall street journal." these idiots blast people like laura ingram. why aren't you a loyal republican? well, i think a loyal republican says the house is on fire. and time's running out. if we want to save this house, we'd better do it now. i tried that a couple of weeks ago. guess what? time's running out. you know when early voting starts in ohio? less than a week. >> 26 states have already started voting. >> 26 states have already started early voting. in ohio where we're going to show some polls this morning that show just how horribly mitt romney's doing in ohio. you know what? i was saying last week there are 45 days. there aren't really 45 days left. they've got to turn this thing around or they lose. this is what jason riley wrote in "the wall
, adjunct fellow at the manhattan institute. >>guest: it was the speech of a president running if re-election, not a hint of apology for america for the values in this speech, a lot of toughness, there was almost a focus only on the middle east and the muslim world. no mention of china, russia, the other trouble spots. it was all, fellow, here is what we expect of you. pull up your socks. let's cut the whining about outrage. look at your responsibilities to your people, to free speech, to the values of the united nations and to our values. he set some standards. >>shepard: he was tougher in this speech against those in the muslim world whom you mentioned than he has been in previous addresses. >>guest: very much so. there was no islam is a great religion, none of that today. there was just a statement about how important it is for these new countries feeling their way, led by new men, to get a handle on the violence that threatens the presence of americans in their country. one thing you said that intrigued me, he said we want to stay, we want to help you, we don't want to dictate, we want di
significant right now? >> he has more than 40 days to go before this election, but keep in mind that the presidential debates, a series of presidential debates in that vice presidential debate gets going next week. so he doesn't have a whole lot of time on the ground to persuade swing state voters like here in ohio that he needs them on his side, and you can see he has this economic message behind me right now in big letters on that sign. it says we need a real recovery. he has been fine-tuning his economic message all morning long. trying to reconnect with voters in this stais state. he said at a hearing in the western of the state that his heartaches for people who are struggling in this economy. take a listen to a little bit of what he had to say earlier this morning. >> there is so many in our country that are hurting right now. i want to help them. he know what it takes to get an economy going again and creating jobs. i know a lot of folks that have jobs wonder how they can make ends meet until the end of the month and put food on the table until the -- >> and it's not just
terrorist attack. this could be benghazi gate on the eve of the election. also this evening, mitt romney should draw a red line for middle income taxpayers and say you will not lose your deductions and you will get yours lower tax rates. he has to have a chris cal clear growth message in next week's debate. it could be his last chance. plus the nfl made a deal overnight and the real refs will be on the field this evening. this is a huge story where there were billions of dollars at stake. we have an exclusive new england patriots owner robert kraft joins me this evening. he is the first owner to speak out. all right. following monday's outburst by mahmoud ahmadinejad, it was israeli benjamin netanyahu's turn today. danielle lee joins us with the details. >> good evening. today prime minister netanyahu used a cartoon-like graphic to drive home his fear that iran could have a nuclear bomb completed by this coming summer. he said the time for peaceful negotiations is running out. from a fight over the west bank to fears about iran's nuclear program, netanyahu spoke under pressure before the
. >> reporter: as both hunker down for intense practice, the polls show americans overwhelming with the election and the president lose. in a new abc news/"washington post" poll out this morning, 63% of registered voters expect president obama to win the election. that's his biggest lead so far when it comes to expectations. but looking at like hi supporters, the race is much closer. president obama leads mitt romney by two points. republican governor chris christie predicted romney could close the gap with president obama after a strong showing on wednesday's debate. >> i'm absolutely confident when we get to thursday morning, george. >> reporter: president obama is keeping his answers short and concise. >> the president has got to be president. this is the guy that killed osama bin laden. i think he can stand up to mitt romney but he's got to relax. >> mitt romney keeps hammering president obama's foreign policy. in a new op-ed, romney calls for a new strategy in the middle east. at the mercy of events rather than shaping them. >>> the supreme court convened for its new term with a full docket
adversaries. >> let's go to the election. you have a 50-50 race. >> it looks like a tossup for president. the house will stay in republican hands but no one can be sure. >> how does the risk affect your strategy. i think the sentiment is that obama is probably going to win. i have been pleasantly surprised to see how the stock market has been in the polls. i think if the election were here today obama would win. but, so that basically if romney starts to do better i think that is good news for the stock market. by hook or by crook do you think the hook will be solved? even congress doesn't want a recession. i don't care about the composition of congress. they know that a $450 billion tax hike will doom us. do you assume that they are going to get through the fiscal cliff without falling off it? >> i would say this though, i think there is enough strength from the home building and the rising house price impact on the economy, that if we do go over, that i think we will avoid a negative consequence and bear in mind that the open-ended decision by the fed to go to qe 3. i think he will be

, but there are no certainties here, a lot can happen between now and election day. stuart: always a pleasure, mark. thank you. it's almost 9:49 about a minute to go before 9:50, but we always give you the gold price at this time so here it is. 1,774.80, we're up 10 bucks today. interesting. while world leaders are gathering in new york, president obama is not meeting with any of them. instead sitting down with barbara walters and whoopi goldberg and last week on david letterman. do these appearances make him look presidential or just simply help with young voters? good question. we will ask rn krchc chairman r priebus if it's working for the president and if romney should be doing the same copying with young people. what should he do: teachers strike, are unions standing in the the way of progress of our public schools? we'll ask the president of a charter school about that. and a major debacle at the end of the monday night football game, the replacement officials make the wrong call. after this, is it time for them to tell them to hit the road? gretchen and charles are next. >> i've got one issue with dem
is in the state today. they don't spend time in states less than six weeks before an election by accident. >> chris, when we talk about this campaign, how is it possible, karen you weigh in here, how is it possible for mitt romney to win without ohio? there's a very narrow way but he would have to win both virginia and florida, and he's not -- he's not looking so great in those states right now either. >> one of the things -- >> right. >> one of the things that really is clear today also is there's a new mitt romney ad and this shows the real effect of that 47% mistake in the video because here's his first to camera ad, and what he's saying in the ad, is, you know, that he would take care of the middle class. let's listen. >> more americans are living in poverty than when president obama took office. and 15 million more are on food stamps. president obama and i both care about poor and middle-class families. the difference is, my policies will make things better for them. we shouldn't measure compassion by how many people are on welfare. we should measure compassion by how many people are
. class 41 days from election day. today seems to be one of the brightest for the obama campaign. a new poll by cbs news, "the new york times", and a university. boaters in three battleground states ohio, pennsylvania, and florida, showed obama ahead between 9% and 12%. both candidates were campaigning in ohio today. president obama accused romney of saying his approach is not credible. he also said romney profited from companies that ship jobs to china. as for the republican challenger, we are joined by dirty jobs host in a rally outside cleveland. he was talking about jobs and manufacturing. president obama may have swag,. but he lacks the ability to fix the u.s. economy. a week from tonight, mitt romney and the president will square off in their first debate. still to come on abc 7 news tonight,, is talking again. -- madonna is talking again. >> live in herndon. >> heartbreak in a fairfax family community. a man murdered his wife and two teenage boys before taking his own life. a vigil for the slain family. live in herds and now with the vigil. this was not a memorial. it was to gath
would win the next election. he's funny about that. he's allowed to run as president of ireland because of his irish heritage. he's also, because arkansas is part of some former french colony or part of the french empire, he is allowed to also go to france where he would have to stay for six months and learn the language, to run as president of france. >> that's not a bad gig. >> you could have president clinton of paris. it could be most entertaining. >> it could be very entertaining. i hear they have fabulous wine there, but i digress. i want to play some of your interview. seriously here, you're talking to bill clinton, talking about romney's appearance at the clinton global initiative. here you go. >> mitt romney today came out with this line, went down very well with the audience, as you expected. there is one thing we learn, a few words from bill clinton can do someone a lot of good. what words would you have for mitt romney given the state of the election campaign right now? >> well, i think, you know, the debates are very important for him. >> crucial? >> i think so. and i think
's right. and any presidential election one way or another it is going to be about the economy, no matter how hard the candidates try to deny that. the most amazing one perhaps of all time is indeed the incumbent obama who is running as though the economy during his term didn't happen or at least if it happened, it was the fault of somebody who was president four years before him and what he wants to talk about is the economy he's going to create starting in january 13 which will consist of people having green jobs, making windmills and solar panels. i think the american voters are probably getting a little bit frustrated that no one will talk about the economy as it exists right now, dropping to 1.3% in the second quarter. the united states economy is barely, barely moving. now i think voters want to know what's going on. dagen: what's going on with mitt romney, he can't seem to put together a cohesive discussion about the state of the economy that is resonating with voters. you mentioned in the column that he was talking about trade cheaters and energy independence, which seem wholly re
on debt and obama is better at the economy? >> no. it remind me of 1936 when fdr ran for re-election. unfortunately, they were wrong and we went into a terrible decline after that. you know, americans are naturally optimistic. they see that kay shiler is up the past three months. they figure housing is getting better. i can tell you from our perspective at tangent where we spend our time raising money for funds and private companies, that's not the case. >> peter, what about in the meantime we have the fiscal cliff issues. is that keeping the markets in check right now? what do you think investors are waiting for or hoping for come december 31? >> well, the s&p 500 is near a multiyear high. i think the fiscal cliff is not what they're thinking about right now. i think right now, and i specify that the market's time has shrunk dramatically, the focus on this tug of war between the central banks and the reality that on the other hand the economy is slowing down. i think the markets will focus on the fiscal issues on the first tuesday in november. >> peter, what do you think is going on
. of course you heard it no republican has ever won the election while losing ohio. jan crawford is there covering the romney campaign. >> hello, ohio. >> buckeye state is a wonderful place. >> o.h. o.h. >> if we win ohio we win the election. >> reporter: ohio is known as the bellwether and that's why it's seen a lot of president obama and mitt romney with today's visit both have been here 14 times each in the campaign this year. for romney the tough battle is getting tougher. the new cbs news poll shows president obama widening his lead here jumping four points since last month. there are other troubling signs for romney, voters in ohio and two other swing states we surveyed now give the president the edge on the economy, the corner stone of romney's campaign and those voters also say they believe romney's policies will favor the rich. >> there's been a consistent line of afact from the president. >> i do not believe that another round of tax cuts for millionaires are going to bring good jobs back to ohio. >> reporter: it features promptly in mr. obama's television ads which has
it be disastrous for the country if mitt romney were elected? >> well, you know, i think america is so strong, and we've got so much going for us, that we can survive a lot. and, but the american people don't want to just survive. we want everybody to thrive. we want folks to have a shot. and so, the question just becomes whose policies are more likely to lead us to where we want to go? >> now, when the first lady was asked whether she'd ever consider running for president, she said she didn't have the patience for the job. the president agreed, which could get dicey at home. mitt romney will have another chance to hammer the president on foreign policy matters this morning. the gop challenger will speak at the clinton global initiative meeting in two hours. here's a sample of what we can expect. >> he says the developments in the middle east are bumps in the road. these are not bumps in the road. these are human lives. these are developments we do not want to see. this is time for the president who will shape events in the middle east, not just be merciful or be at mercy of the events in the
. >> only game in town. central bank bull market. >> goes back and looks at every presidential election year i think going back to '28. s&p the first half peak is normally april 6th. this time it was april 2nd. second half peak is normally september 7th. this year september 14th. the pattern and it usually comes with a nice fourth quarter, they say obviously history doesn't always run exactly but pay attention to some of these patterns. it's shaping up to be historically a recognizable year. >> i thought it was interesting. the one difference is that, oh, boy. i hate to say this because it is not meant to be nonpatriotic but we are not as important to our equity markets as we were. we are -- we see our markets, we were doing fine. it's been a long time since this period obviously but where i look at the european market i see spain down and i see a seller market. we're not charging and i don't even want to for a moment pretend we are. >> speaking of which european markets are moving a little bit lower. we'll wait for the results of spain's bank stress test due out in about three hours from no
have for mitt romney given the state of the election campaign right now? >> well, i think, you know, the debates e very important for him. >> crucial? >> i think so. and i think if he's going to double down on that 47% remark, that will cause difficulties bee no know that the overwhelming number of those people work and have children and the reason they don't pay federal income taxes is the median income is as low as it was in 1995 now, and until the current eleion season, republicans and democrats crpported both the child tax it andhe earned income tax credit. this is a rejection of basicmor bipartisan policy to support workingfamilies. it is not a bunch freeloaders. >> there he goes. piers mo bringing up the 47% from the secretly videotaped moment in that fund-raiser back in, what, may. but no big sis hs going straight for that 47% line. noand quite interesting because bill clinton on my show tually a few months ago had, of course, supported mt romney over his record of bain capital and refused to join inhe obama super pac bashing of romney over that. >> that made news. >> it mad
election-season line against iran. the cold realty is that after nearly four years of failed diplomacy and half-hearted sanctions that he opposed until congress forced his hand, neither iran nor israel believe him. he talked about diplomacy but that time is not unlimited. is that enough? i mean, don't republicans have a point here? >> it is hard to tell. i think "the wall street journal" was trying to give him a left-handed compliment. he was very firm yesterday and he was very clear. you know, i think diplomacy, in general, is a business of nuance. but yesterday he was about as firm and clear and it was a very beautiful defense of american policy or freedom of speech. he was very clear on the nuclear issue and thought he spoke beautifully about chris stevens. i think the editorial opinion this morning is very favorable to him. >> and to your point, i think he did speak very clearly. he did speak very forcefully and beautifully. but i think what republicans are saying is to what end? we have been speaking beautifully about these topics for four years now and the centrifuges are still t
